Description doublas 2006-12-12 10:02:41 EST
Description of problem:
Message filtes containing a clause "Subject start with" don't work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a message filter with a clause "Subject start with xxx" and an
2. Send yourself a test message with suject "xxxblehbleh".
3. Check if the filter worked as expected.
Actual results:
The message doesn't get filtered so the action doesn't execute.

Expected results:
The message has to be filtered. This is, the filter's action has to be executed
on the incoming message.

Additional info:
It worked fine with these package version on a Fedora Core 5 (I'm not sure where
the message filter functionality belongs to so I post these three packages):


It started to fail with the very next versions of these packages.

I'm able to correct/reproduce the problem just downgrading/upgrading these
packages. The filters.xml file is preserved between upgrades/downgrades.

I am also hitting this in rhel5 - have been for a long time. (since beta1?)
Seems to be still present in GOLD bits (just yum updated last night)

My exact problem (filter starting with "[Bug") found and confirmed workaround is
"It seems to be a leading space issue, using a space before the text supposed to
start the title makes the filter works on my dapper installation"

My version info:
$ rpm -qa | grep evolution

2.6.18-8.el5xen #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:29:35 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Dell Precision 490

I also run evolution on my personal laptop (not running rhel5) and the same
filter works fine without the space.  Version info for that is:
evolution-sharp-0.10.2-27.2 #1 Tue Sep 19 07:26:15 UTC 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-03-01 15:34:02 EST
Cloning for RHEL5.  See bug #230621.
Comment 3 doublas 2007-03-02 07:14:03 EST
Thanks for the tip. I confirm that in FC6 the leading space trick seems to solve
the problem.

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-02 14:12:49 EDT
Is this problem still present in Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
Comment 6 doublas 2007-10-03 08:59:42 EDT
Sorry, I have no idea. I can confirm it up to Fedora 7.
Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-03 09:53:17 EDT
Thanks for responding.  I think this was fixed recently but I'll double-check.
Comment 8 Milan Crha 2007-11-20 13:06:15 EST
evolution-data-server in Fedora 7 doesn't contain fix from upstream bug [1], but
evolution-data-server in Fedora 8 does contain that fix, and I believe it fixes
your issue. If possible, can you check, please?

Comment 9 doublas 2007-12-17 07:06:06 EST
Sorry for the delay. I just updated the box to Fedora 8 and can confirm that
problem is solved :)

These are the packages installed:


Thanks for your help.
